Hi Mario,

This is what I thought and so did not want to accuse Dell of deliberately
removing features from the driver.  

Many thanks for confirming what I thought :)

Morgan:

Dell doesn't use any "specific" variants or derivations of drivers for
controlling any hardware.  The same driver you would publicly get is the
same driver that is used for factory installation.  There has been no
requests to explicitly disable functionality of HDMI audio.

Regards
